Jane Louise Harris, age 92, of Upper Sandusky, passed away peacefully surrounded by her children, Monday, Nov. 11, 2019.
She was born Aug. 11, 1927, to the late Clarence and Agnes (Quail) Clinger. She married Carl R. Harris on Sept. 20, 1947, and he preceded her in death Jan. 12, 1976.

Jane, Mom, Grandma Jane, Gigi, was happiest when surrounded by her family, whether it be one family member or the whole gang. She enjoyed telling her nieces and nephews stories of their parents. Jan has left her family a legacy of faith and love that will be passed on through the generations.
